CHURCH GOER'
I've been to 'deeper-life
church'
I church with them because they show holiness
In both their
within and outward
appearance
Still I am a
born-again sinner Because I do the will of my flesh
The more I church, the
more I sin.
Who am I?
I'm a church goer!
Only God knows if I would getto
heaven!
Later, I went to
'Rccg' to warm its bench.
I can see clearly,
Within us, the faith is getting cold
I began to put on ear-
rings
oh! I neglect biblical-
patterns of way of
life'Ipeters3v3 '
I moved from wearing mini-skirts to wearing trousers
That is why, my man can't afford to buy a nicker
Because women've
bought our trousers
Going to heaven is
uncertain
Who am I?
I'm a church goer!
I went to prosperity church
Who preaches how to be richon earth
But ignore heaven!
There I join earthly-choir
I sing softly
with my lips
Also with uncovered hair-style and
in trousers
Singing without my consciencebeatîng
That I'm a fornicator!
Why do I wear trousers?
Yet I dance
before the innocent
worshippers!
I poet wailed!
Because some will
move from church to hell
I've moved round and
round from warm to cold
From living to non-living
church
-with no point to
hold
who am I?
I'm a church goer!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
